This week's theme, with April Fool's Day in mind, is Jokes or pranks, something silly or what ever you think fits the bill.

(If you all reckon it's a bit on the hard side let me know and I'll put something else up - just wanted to tie something in with April fools. )

We're always open for weekly theme suggestions here.

It was an exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. There wasn't an explanation so not sure what the artist was trying to say. Oh yeah, it was a traveling exhibit so I shouldn't have been taking pictures. Sssshhhhhhh...!

As far as I'm concerned most 'modern art' could be counted as a joke, though I quite like those laughing mannequins
It's a difficult theme, and best I can do is this London pub sign - Punch & Judy

A bit difficult but here is a photo of...well I'm not sure what our room steward had in mind when he fashioned this towel animal? person? thing. I think it's suppose to be a chicken, we laughed at it anyway.




I don't know what he would have done if I hadn't left my clip on sunglasses on the desk top.

Cameras not allowed inside, but we found plenty to keep everyone amused, in what is advertised as "The Largest Joke Shop in England".

The bayside walk where this carving is situated has many similar pieces of woodworking, but this is the only one sporting a toque, scarf and sunglasses! My sister tells me that he's had them all winter

Hi. I hope this doesn't offend, but I thought it was funny, so ...

I was walking down the street and suddenly saw a crack bikini:
